of the obama administration is they got it through congress, when the legislation, but they fail to explain it in terms people understand. they ended up getting away with it, but had a very high cost of the legislation itself. were still battling about it and its implementation. learn how to lose and really the lesson is explain it to the public because it's too complicated for them to understand details. explain in terms they understand. ironically the obama administration failed to do that. truman did magnificently. you know who ousted a good job? george w. bush. he had a medicare expansion. it is the largest in history, arguably the most conservative president in the second half of the 20 century. ronald reagan and george bush, both of them pass huge medicare expansions and both of them were really good at explaining a nice simple terms. reagan passed catastrophic medicare expansion and he goes out and says we've got to worry about people going through. republicans hated it in a year later congress repeal said, the reagan got it through and explained it in nice, simple terms. for a while
